Musical Time Travel: Classic Sesame Album Coming to Vinyl

Filed under: News — Tags: — Joe Hennes @ 5:25 pm


Hands-down one of my favorite Sesame Street albums is Sesame Road.  With classics like “Letter B”, “Rebel L” and “Hey Food”, it’s a tour de force of a rock album.  Not just by Sesame standards, but of the overall music world too.  Seriously, it’s just the best.

The album debuted on cassette tape in 1993, and was then re-released (with a few edits) onto CD in 1995.  If it had come out just a few years earlier, we might’ve seen it on a few other formats as well.  So somehow, it wasn’t until 2016 that we saw this classic album on vinyl.

This year on Record Store Day, November 25th, you’ll have the opportunity to buy a limited-run (only 2,000 being printed) record of Sesame Road!  The record itself will come in one of four colors (red, blue, yellow, and an extremely rare green).

The track listing is as follows:

  • Letter B
  • Off to School
  • It’s Zydeco
  • Wet Or Dry
  • I Want To Hold Your Ear
  • Grouch Girls Don’t Want to Have Fun
  • The Word Is “No”
  • Healthy Food
  • A Little Yelp From My Friends
  • Rebel L
  • There’s a Lot of Different Ways to Get to School
  • Hand Talk
  • ZZ Blues
  • I’m The Big One Now
  • D-U-C-K-I-E
  • I’m A Bookwork Baby
  • Wet Paint
  • Once Is Not Enough
  • It’s Just a Rock (But I Like It Fine)
  • Hey Food

So as you’re out shopping on Black Friday, be sure to hit up your local record store and snag a copy of this for your turntable!
